Kongolo joined the Premier League side on loan last January after failing to break into the Monaco first team. The versatile defender impressed in England and has convinced Huddersfield Town to break their transfer record to sign Kongolo permanently.

The 24-year-old has signed a four-year contract after Huddersfield paid a fee of around €20 million to Monaco. A record for the club.

Huddersfield manager David Wagner told the clubs website, “I am so happy that we have Terence back. This transfer is a big statement from this club. We knew he was a real top player when we got him on a rental basis in January. Otherwise, you would not play for the Dutch national team at a World Cup and you would not become a champion with Feyenoord, but his performances in our shirt have exceeded all expectations.”

Kongolo made 17 appearances for Huddersfield last season and now ends a short spell at Monaco, who paid Feyenoord €15 million to sign him last summer.
